Try this on your kitty ... Sit across from your cat about 2or 3 feet. Have eye contact and smile. Now blink your eyes once slowly and keep staring at the cat. Blink 3 times slowly. Sometimes it works immediately that the cat will blink back. If it doesn't it may still approach you for a pat as this is a very welcoming gesture. If it doesn't respond the first time, try again later. If you think I'm crazy...then don't bother. :-b
This freezing cold morning was spent in the city (Ottawa) gathering up documents and applications for a building permit to begin building a home on our lot this Summer. I hope you follow along as this exciting??? adventure unfolds for us. I think the 'retired guy' is going to have fun with this. Me, I just want it up and ready to be decorated. The construction part bores me silly but I know I'll get into it once it starts. I know for sure I will learn a thing or two about the process.
If our marriage holds out ;-) and all goes well, we should be on the lot by Fall.
I promised you a good cookie recipe yesterday so here it is. Don't make these if you are dieting because these are two-fisted cookies. And you do need tea (or coffee) to go along with them. It is a match made in heaven.
